Hadn’t thought the Islanders would have Travis Hamonic come here during a lockout, but apparently he’s coming.
The Islanders sent down 19 players today, with Hamonic the only real surprise in the bunch. That doesn’t include the five guys who’ll need waivers. Edit: per Bob McKenzie this afternoon, those five are indeed on today.
G–Anders Nilsson, Kevin Poulin
D–Marc Cantin, Calvin de Haan, Matt Donovan, Travis Hamonic, Jon Landry, Aaron Ness
F–Casey Cizikas, Jason Clark, Brandon DeFazio, Mike Halmo, Kirill Kabanov, Brock Nelson, Nino Niederreiter, John Persson, Blair Riley, Johan Sundstrom, David Ullstrom
Camp begins Sept. 28 on the Island. Not sure when they’ll be coming up this way.
